Biden tried to tell everyone he wasn't ready to be President, but no one listened.

What really scares me is that Obama won because of two things: 1) black pride and 2) white guilt. Maybe he'll make a great POTUS. I sincerely hope he does. But this election was all about emotion, and that's dangerous.

I thought we wanted change. If Obama is going to make one mistake after another, that seems like 4 more years of the same thing.

There's always at least one permanent anti-Obamamite in the crowd...

His learning mistakes will be far, far better than the industrial-strength screw ups Bush committed, and the super-industrial strength ones McCain would have inflicted...

Ability is far, far more important than experience... Obama will surround himself with plenty of experienced people - so don't worry your little mind.

Cut the guy some slack and stop your b***ching...

For my fellow McCain supporters, let's be above this stuff. We're bigger than this, we're smarter than this, and we're classier than this.

He's trying to be humble, he trying to begin delivering unity for the country, let's try to help him do that.

I do my best not to lower myself to the standards set by others before me. I didn't want Obama to be our President, but he's going to be.

So let's give him a chance and if he fails and lets us down, we'll boot him out. That's what's so great about this country. We are an impatient people and if he doesn't live up to his promises, he doesn't get a second chance.

My husband and I were saying the same thing last night. We live in NJ and it ALWAYS goes Dem so our vote really means nothing.

While I will stand by Obama because he will be pres in Jan, I still think the American people might have made a big mistake.

Actually, they contribute quite a lot. They ridicule the RIDICULOUS fear-mongering of the Republicans on this forum.

All he said is that he will make mistakes.

EVERYONE makes mistakes. He is human, not a computer.

This is another far reached attempt to unvalidate Obama. Pathetic this is all you Republicans have had for the last several months. Desperation.

The public has spoken, get over it.
